It has been the place to be every Wednesday this summer, either at the Vanderbilt National Historic Site or at the Staatsburgh Historic Site (formerly known as Mills Mansion). There has been some great, live, local music heard across the lawns of these amazing locales all summer long.

Unfortunately, Music in the Parks is getting ready to wrap up another great summer with the final concert of the season, and in my humble opinion, they couldn’t have chosen a better musical guest to wrap up the summer of 2018.

This week, don’t mss one of our favorites, West Point Benny Havens Band on Wednesday, August 15 starting at 6:30, the rain date is Thursday, August 16. They will be performing their high-energy and fun show in front of the Vanderbilt mansion.

As this show is extremely popular, car-pooling is encouraged. Gather your family and friends and get there early to have the best seat on the lawn to enjoy a picnic supper and then some great music.

These shows all summer long have been made possible with the Town of Hyde Park in conjunction with The National Parks Service, NY State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation, Hyde Park Lions Club, Hyde Park Knights of Columbus, Hyde Park Rotary, and the Hyde Park Chamber of Commerce.
